It is always nice to come here for casual and quiet Japanese meals. All the foods are acceptable. Nothing go wrong to order anything.

You can find some western food like Cesar Salad or US barbecue sauce mixed with teriyaki sauce in their sirloin slice. I enjoyed these modification, as long as not too many fusion like what it is now. I impressed with the interior design.

As said in the headline, then this is one of the best Japanese places in town, i can however only stand for the Sushi, Sashimi and other rolls, since this is what we would normally order, and that has always been very fresh and delicious, so we will continue to come back for our fresh fish fix....

Thats why we're so happy that we found this excellent restaurant on top of SriJaya Building. Dishes are delicious, fresh and classy! Desserts is awesomely tasty. Service staff is courteous and welcoming. This is certainly our family favourite Japanese... More

No one in the family dislike the foods offer by this restaurant. My fave is grill Salmon head meanwhile my wife likes the Grill Salmon. The place is quite nice, even though sometime felt a little bit dark. Now I am craving for the Grill Salmon Head.

I've been here many times. When I was here for the first time, I saw several japanese people. It gave me a high expectation about the food. It turned out to be very nice. The last time I went here with my mom, I sat on the private room. The room itself was cozy but somehow felt a little bit... More
